Why Christmas Jumpers Don’t Need to be Over The Top
One of the best things to come out of Christmas has to be festive jumpers. They don’t need to include the word ‘novely’ in their description to be festive. I’m all for totally over the top ridiculous jumpers for the likes of ugly sweater parties. But for the every day the classic Fair Isle or sequin cashmere can’t be beaten.
If wearing a Christmas jumper with a red nose pom-pom and giant Rudolph on the front isn’t your vibe – try more of a Nordic-style design with subtle snowflakes and Fair Isle pattern. Combining classic red, cream and black yarns for a classic Scandi cool Christmas chic look.
Practical Dressing in December
Not only are wearing Christmas jumpers festive in December, but they’re also incredibly practical. You don’t need to go all out wearing a matching Santa hat, reindeer antlers and bauble earrings if you don’t want to. Style it up for a subtler look like I’m wearing here; over a plaid shirt, casual skinny fit jeans, some suede chunky heels and a tote bag ideal for Christmas shopping.
With Christmas jumper day on the 12th of December raising money for Save The Children, get feeling festive around the office whilst doing good in the process.
You’ll find the likes of similar festive jumpers on the high street. Try Primark for fun prints on a budget, or treat yourself to a more luxury cashmere sweater from the likes of Boden, M&S and Zara.
What I’m Styling
This Christmas jumper I’m styling is one I bought a year ago from H&M. I loved the cosiness and softness of the wool, and the subtle glittery sequin detailing on the front. Without being too over the top, it’s appropriate enough to wear for the office, as well as dressing more casually for some festive shopping.
